Here is an old video of Dr Brett Steenbarger at the Trader Expo from 2009, it’s about 10 minutes long and only scratches the surface of issues that people have with trading. I believe you can also apply this to long-term investing strategies aswell as many other things.
I feel it’s very important that you learn to listen to yourself, monitor how you behave, the anxiety levels, frustrations, the ecstasy and so forth as you move around the market. This could be due to holding a losing position that continually goes down for months, hoping things may turnaround or overtrading like crazy on the emini futures trying to make a loss back or ‘revenge’ trading. There is so much to cover with this which i’ll try and touch on over the next year with reference to various sources. If you learn it and work at it, the feeling of empowerment and results that follow can be truly awesome. More info can be found with Dr Brett and FuturesTrader71 resources at the top in the blogroll.
Here is the link, enjoy.
